The Bring and Buy, which is open Saturday and Sunday, is like the pop-up charity shopping of conventions,
you literally never know what you're going to get. Do you have figures
gathering dust? Manga that you're just not going to read
anymore? Clothes and cosplay attracting moths? One fan's trash is
another fan's treasure as they say.
All you need to do is label up your goodies and drop them off with the committee when you arrive. There's an administration charge and a portion of the proceeds goes towards the Convention Charity for every sale, the rest goes back to you. Unsold items can be collected after the Bring and Buy has closed.
To enter your goods for the bring and buy please fill in the form below once it's live (typically 2 months ahead of HotaruCon). Or if you have previously entered items by entering your ticket ID and clicking LOAD. This will then bring up your list of goods which can be edited at any time before the convention. We will print out labels that you can pick up at the convention. When you arrive please bring your items to the Bring & Buy room indicated on the Con Map (or Ops if B&B is closed) and we will scan them in.
By entering your items into the Bring & Buy you agree to the HotaruCon Bring & Buy Terms & Conditions, which can be found in the HotaruCon Bring & Buy Info. This also contains the full Guidelines and the Restricted Items list.
Bring and buy submissions for HotaruCon 2024 are currently closed. Thank you for your interest!
